    Miss Hissypants, the Ceratogyrus marshalli that trolled me last month, has actually molted.

    She had not molted in so long that I began to doubt my diagnosis of pre-molt. So two days ago, I left a mealworm with a crushed head at the entrance just in case. This afternoon, there is no sign of the mealworm, so I pulled her enclosure out to peer into her burrow. Sure enough, there is a molt thoroughly embedded in the wall of her burrow. (I can only see a femur.)

    So now she is enjoying a fat dubia roach for her patience.

    Wow. I don't see any emboli, so he should be a big boy when he finally does mature.

    It's a molting party over here! 4 molts in the last 24 hours;

    N. chromatus female, now 3+"

    G. pulchripes, unsexed, ~2"

    Also got a molt from my M. balfouri that's hinting female, and can just spy a molt in the burrow of my Chilobrachys sp. Cambodia Blue.

    Still have my N. chromatus male, N. tripepii unsexed, and B. hamorii female in premolt, and those are the ones I know of! :hilarious:

    It wasn't today, and no photos, but my female C. meridionalis is leggier and skinnier. Her fangs seem to already be hardened as well so a feeding is imminent. Very shy and reclusive, so I had no idea. She was due, however, so it makes sense.

    My P. metallica just molted last night and I figured I'd make a little collage to show how much she's grown.
    Edit: they are all just post molts except for the last picture which is right before a molt

    One of my unsexed N. Chromatus slings molted. Just waiting on the other 3 now. Abdomens are so dark it has to be any day now.
